From word of Seibertronian Cyberpath we have learned from Emiliano Santalucia, an artist for Pop Culture Shock Collectibles that we have gotten our first look at Transformers G1 Optimus Prime statue on the artist's page.

Another preview time!
First sneak of Pop Culture Shock small scale (10"-12") G1 Optimus Prime statue.
With all the love by me, Peer Brauner, Ant Adams and Jerry Macaluso!

Crushed-up 3-step changers, plus any 2 of your most hated and despised TF toy lines (for an additional 70 US Dollars).

It's been a little while since we last heard anything about the new Pop Culture Shock! Transformers licensed figures (along with the other Hasbro properties that are receiving the figure treatment, of course), but thanks to one of the artists behind the project - veteran Emiliano Santalucia on his Facebook page - we now have a look at the torso of the Optimus Prime toy that will eventually make it to retail!

Isn't this coming out great? ;)

Nearly four months after it was first previewed and a couple weeks after we got a look at the torso, we have our first full look at the licensed Optimus Prime statue from Pop Culture Shock! This image comes to us via their Instagram page.

The statue is heavily Generation One-based in design, and sports a cel-shaded deco reminiscent of the cartoon (or the similarly-G1-inspired Transformers: Devastation game). Check below for images, and remember to share your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums! Does this statue look good to you? Is the Sunbow-cartoon style more appealing than the updated aesthetic of other statue releases? We want to know what you think!

As much as G1 Prime or the G1 cartoon don't appeal to me these days I do like the cell shaded style very much (and loved Transformers: Devastation) and so that makes this a nice statue in my opinion.

I think that looks best as a 2D image. I prefer real shadows and lighting on my toys if that makes sense.

As if Optimus jumped out of the screen! Is it posable though? Meaning more action figure than statue? If yes, that's very interesting. If not, it's a big "meh".

Statues are rarely posable. I don't think any statue I have is.

Some ultra expensive, ultra premium figures are called "posable statues". But I don't remember the brand. They make Bayverse and IDWverse ones.

Perhaps some. One I paid about 2k (including shipping) isn't posable.

Shortly after we got our first full look at the statue, we now have an online listing for Pop Culture licensed Shock's Optimus Prime statue!

The statue (set for release some time between now and August) will measure approximately 10.5" tall, and features a swappable right arm to give Prime either his Ion Blaster or Energon Axe. It can be pre-ordered from Pop Culture Shock's website for $160 (including an initial deposit) or for $128 if paid all at once. The listing also features more photos from various angles, a few of which we've mirrored below for your convenience!

What do you think of this statue? Does the price seem reasonable to you, or will you be giving it a pass? Let us know your thoughts by posting in the Energon Pub Forums!

OPTIMUS PRIME is the strong, wise and compassionate leader of the AUTOBOTS. Dedicated to protecting all life, he fights unceasingly to defeat the DECEPTICONS. OPTIMUS PRIME believes so strongly in the righteousness of his mission that he would be willing to sacrifice himself to save the lives of others.

Wasn't all that interested before when I assumed it would be a $500 statue, but now knowing it's only $128 and has optional parts I'm quite a bit more interested. :-?

Courtesy of the Instagram account for Pop! Culture Shock collectibles, we have the first image of their next officially licensed Transformers statue - after the cell shaded Optimus Prime we have seen, and the Megatron sketch at San Diego Comic Con 2018, both initially designed by Emiliano Santalucia - and it's continuing on the Decepticon line-up with the Seeker leader and faction second-in-command: Starscream!

The prototype is still in its early stages, so plenty of details are still missing, but you can still check it out below and let us know what you think of this new line - does it interest you? Do you want to see more? Is it something you'd consider picking up for display? Join the Energon Pub and share your thoughts!

Starscream is printed. Don’t pay attention to the top of the base or jets fire as those will be hand sculpted

I hope that's not a final size, the big size, and accompanying giant price tag will probably turn away a lot of buyers.

Still looks pretty sweet though.

The Optimus, Megatron, and Soundwave look like cheap "shampoo bottles."
However that Shockwave statue look SAH-WEET! Yeah yeah, price difference and such. But if one have the money and the space for a statue, might as well go for a genuine piece of art.

The fact that Optimus, Megs, and Soundwave are represented by fairly flat renders while the Shockwave statue is represented by what appears to be final product photos probably doesn't do the former any favors.

There's also the fact that the first 3 are 50$ while shockwave is 220$. Apple and oranges, sure, but it's like showing a MPM just after showing one-steps.
